cut my teeth
against your walls
playing god
water to wine
hear the screams
part the red sea
let it bleed
until I'm quenched
let me drink.

conduct basement lab rat tests
robotic overlook of unprecedented acts
meld the flesh heap to the floor
and it stands, no nerve untapped
ripping skin from its back
shed like nothing ever fucking happened

whip my back
over scabs
train for dressage
when i'm spent
show all you have
tear the rib cage
from my chest
skin off the rest

crush cartilage into the brain
with just the palm of your hand
sling the noob through a noose
scoff at the snap
hound wrenches to and fro
from sole on up
shredded pinata hangs in seconds

ears remain dipt
finally adjusted to the pitch change
hope it stays until the ending
guess this is falling action
conclusion came so fast, missed it
stuttered resolution
superficially guilt stricken
always belonged back in the box it crept out from
another shameful specimen unworthy of classification
concocting inevitable strife
spreading disease to each and every patient

pay the piper
2 pence apiece
no children
for the taking
end my life
like a captain.
